Parkside have recently, once again, undergone the official inspection by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons to gain our Accreditation from them. Not every practice undertakes this and it is a reassuring for all clients to know that the practice they go to has this qualification, given by independent auditors. Accredited Practices go that bit further, to ensure clients of a standard of quality and expertise which is independently monitored giving you and your pet the reassurance you look for when it comes to veterinary care.
You can search for approved practices in your area on the RCVS web site HERE. Be sure to click the box below the search box to show only Approved Practices.
The Practice Standards Scheme has been devised in order to indicate a quality standard of Veterinary Premises so that you can make a choice based on vigorous independant inspections. (See details at the RCVS web site and how the standards are met). Good reassurance for all clients.
Not all Vets need to be members, so you should check to ensure the highest standards are being met - it is your decision.
Dundee is a Tier 2 practice, Barnhill is Tier 2 and Parkside Equine also qualifies as Tier 2 in the Practice Standards Scheme, as is our Farm Practice. High standards all round! The smaller Broughty Ferry surgery, with more limited facilities, is Tier 1, but still has the same highly trained Vets and support staff.
... here is the newest RCVS logo - We have all three!
As a Veterinary Nurse Training Practice(TP) we need to keep our standards at the highest level - for your pets and for our trainee nurses and visting Vet students. We accept placements from trainee nurses who are placed at Universities and other training establishments and we accept Veterinary Student placements, who need to see practice during their vacations. This observation in a practice situation is how they learn practical work during their training years. When you attend our surgeries as well as with out-of-hours emergencies, you are always seen by a fully qualified PARKSIDE Vet.
